Anger Management Duration icon 100 hours Qualification icon Statement of Attainment Lessons icon 9 lessons

Learn to manage anger and develop skills to work pro-actively with others.

We hear a lot about Anger Management.  Whilst we tend to construe anger as a bad thing, anger involves both positive and negative aspects. The negative aspects are all too familiar i.e. thinking becomes clouded, you may become overly defensive, and you might act on your anger in a violent or aggressive way.  The positive aspects which are often overlooked are that we often express our feelings when we otherwise might repress them, we have heightened energy levels due to physiological arousal, and we can often solve problems and take control whilst we are in this elevated state. The idea behind anger management is not to remove all anger, but to manage it by channelling it into the positive aspects and away from the negative aspects. If anger is expressed in acceptable and appropriate ways then it can be productive rather than destructive.

This course will help you to:

  • Learn to understand anger.
  • Explore techniques that can be useful in the management of anger.
  • Learn how to deal with anger management appropriately with different demographics.
  • Develop skills to work constructively with others to manage anger.

Biopsychology is the study of the biology of the brain and nervous system and its relationship to behaviour. Learn about how the brain functions and influences how we perceive the world with this informative distance learning course.

Discover how our anatomy and physiology influence the way we think and behave.

Biology is the study of life and the way living organisms function. The sub-discipline of physiology encompasses the way things move, chemical and bodily processes, growth, atrophy, and anything else that supports or causes physical or chemical changes to occur within the body. Therefore, it differs from anatomy, which is the study of the physical structure of the body. Psychology is concerned with behaviour and our underlying thoughts and feelings. This subject marries these fields for a unique perspective on how we function as people.

Biopsychology II Duration icon 100 hours Qualification icon Statement of Attainment Lessons icon 7 lessons

Gain greater understanding of the field of biopsychology

Biopsychologists generally consider that evolution has an influence on the pool of behaviour – influencing genes available to members of each species. Evolution is a gradual process of genetic development and change in animal life over generations. Those members of a species best adapted for their environment in any generation (ie. the “fittest”) will have the best chance of surviving and reproducing successfully. Each individual’s genes will initiate a programme of neural development. Genes are the units of inheritance that form part of a chromosome. Some characteristics are determined by one gene, whilst others are determined by many. 

Take this course to find out more.

This course builds on the foundation of Biopsychology I to give you a deeper understanding of the influence of biology, in particular, the influence of the brain, on human behaviour.

Understand brain dysfunction and human behaviour

This course provides a fascinating insight into the field of neuropsychology so students can begin to understand how the nervous system works and what happens when things go wrong. 

The nervous system allows humans to adapt to changes. Changes can occur inside (e.g. too little oxygen while running) or outside (e.g. the anticipation of food or the chill of a winter wind). The nervous system will perceive the change and will take actions to adjust to it. The nervous system is rather like the look-out on a river boat - it monitors conditions and gives warnings when something unusual or dangerous is ahead. Once the warning is received, the body is able to take steps to avoid or correct the situation. The nervous system has to be highly complex to be able to perform such sophisticated services.

Psychological Assessment I Duration icon 100 hours Qualification icon Statement of Attainment Lessons icon 7 lessons

Understand what psychological tests are and why they are used.

Psychological tests assess and evaluate information that is given to the examiner by the client. This information is in the form of answers to interview questions or as answers on paper—or on a computer—to specific questions. Ultimately, a test’s accuracy depends on how carefully and seriously the client answers the questions they are asked.  A psychological assessment is when a skilled psychologist uses the techniques and tools of psychology to learn general or specific facts about another person, either to seek information about how they currently function or to predict their behaviour and functioning in the future.

    Social Psychology I Duration icon 100 hours Qualification icon Statement of Attainment Lessons icon 9 lessons

    Study Social Psychology by distance learning for a fascinating insight into the mind of humans within a social setting.

    Man is a social animal, and as such, it is very important to understand the psychology of how we interact with each other, or act as a group rather than as an individual.

    One example of social psychological research is that concerning the murder of Kitty Genovese. She was stabbed to death in the middle of a busy residential area of New York. Thirty-eight witnesses saw the attack and none of them did anything to intervene, not even to phone the police.

    • Why? The common sense answer might be that they thought someone else had or would intervene, or that the witnesses didn’t care.
    • Study this course to gain an understanding as to why people react in such situations as they do.

    Stress is the number one cause of mental and physical illness in the Western world. It may be acute or chronic and sometimes people are unaware of how it is affecting them until they develop symptoms. There are healthy ways to manage stress and keep it within levels which we can cope with.
